Solution found. The guy who did the "job" bought my brother's revolver.
Everybody is now happy. My brother has cash to look for a 4" 38 special. He is not into guns, and didn't like the snubby very much as found it not easy to shoot accurately. A 4" should be a better option for him.
My friend got rid of his responsibility with my bro for doing such a messy job.
I am happy this story has ended, cause I was the one who convinced my bro to let my friend refinish his 36.... And, by the way, I have learned a good lesson.
Thanks for all your comments.
